President George M. Weah has been pouring fond words on fallen District no.9 Representative, Hon. Munah E. Pelham-Youngblood, who died in Accra, Ghana following a protracted period of illness.
The President said the late Munah Pelham-Youngblood would be remembered for her incredible contribution to “a peaceful revolution that brought us here”—a reference to the Congress for Democratic Change, now Coalition for Democratic 12-year struggle as opposition before a victory in 2017
President Weah made the remarks Sunday, July 12, 2020, when he led a delegation at the Roberts International Airport (RIA) to receive the body of the late Hon. Munah E. Pelham-Youngblood.
At the emotionally charged ceremony, President Weah asked God to grant the fallen lawmaker eternal life saying, “In your hands, oh Lord, we humbly entrust our daughter, Munah E. Pelham-Youngblood”.
“I salute you, Hon. Munah E. Pelham, the only Number 9. I salute you, Plae-Plae Deor (the Kru interpretation for ‘audacious warrior’. I salute you, Astute Revolutionary, the Striker, the Born to Win,” Dr. Weah described the deceased lawmaker.
The Liberian Leader said the late Munah E. Pelham-Youngblood was the first youngest female to ever join the peaceful revolution that brought the CDC to power.
“You will forever remain in our hearts and history for the change that brought us here,” he added.
President Weah further said, “my daughter, go and rest in peace. You fought a good fight. You were ‘sheroes’ amongst ‘sheroes’. I salute you.”
Following the ceremony at the Roberts International Airport, the body of the fallen Montserrado lawmaker was taken to the St. Moses Funeral home in Gardnersville awaiting further funeral arrangements.
